Why do so many people hate halo wars?

Well, many Halo fans didn't like it because they don't know how to play an RTS, and many RTS fans didn't like it because it was too simple.

I still liked it. The only problem I had with it was that there was no need to diversify your units. It was basically just spamming the same unit until you had an entire armada of them.

p + w > 9000, where p is the power level and w is what the scouter said about it.

Actually, its widely considered the best console RTS.

I don't hate it but I haven't had chance to play it yet.

I loved Dune II: The Battle For Arrakis on Sega Megadrive back in the day but it was the only RTS I ever liked so who knows.

Getting awfully tired of GameFAQs mods removing my posts for being "offensive" when I've done nothing wrong

Is there something about the way I type that makes it sound angry? Maybe it's just something about the way you read.

I was a great console rts. Command and conquer 3 and Kanes wrath were also great console rts. Didnt like red alert 3 too much doe to it looking cartoonish to me. But most people view halo as a FPS. Can you imagine playing gears in first person? I for one cant.

Um, yes. A game going from third person to first, or from first to third isn't as big as making an RTS of a FPS series of games...
